Take a quick look at the prom dress styles that are having a major moment! Scroll through the list to find a dress that speaks to you.

Fit-and-Flare Dress

A form-fitting bodice + a flared skirt = the best of both worlds! A fit-and-flare prom dress showcases your waist while a full skirt balances the look—both short and long options available.

Floral Dress

Va-va-bloom! Florals add a flirty, feminine flair to the evening. Take your pick of dresses featuring either bright or dark blooms.


Keep it traditional with a floor-sweeping prom gown. A full skirt on the dance floor will ensure you're the belle of the ball.

Halter Dress

The halter neckline draws the eye up toward your gorgeous face. Try pairing it with an updo hairstyle to really highlight the style.

Lace Dress

A lace prom dress is for the romantic in you. Lace is one of our favorite textured fabrics; it will completely elevate a dress.

Off-The-Shoulder Dress

An alluring off-the-shoulder prom dress is perfect for ladies that want to show a hint of skin. Pick a color that complements you.

Sequined Dress

Shine bright on the dance floor with a sequin dress. This one’s perfect for gals who want to satisfy their desire for glamour.

Two-Piece Dress

Can’t pick one dress? Pick a two-piece! A fun way to switch things up, a two-piece prom dress will flatter most figures and turn heads.
